At the heart of Energy & Utility Skills is the Energy & Utilities Skills Partnership. A major strategic success of this partnership is the implementation of the Talent Source Network (TSN).
For jobseekers, TSN is the jobs hub for the energy and utilities sector including environmental jobs. It promotes hundreds of jobs every month, offering roles as diverse as being an Accountant to a Barista, and a Cyber Analyst to an Engineer. Jobs are available across the whole of the UK, from Belfast to Birmingham and Cardiff to Cheshire.
TSN enables smaller companies to engage with hard to reach demographics from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities (BAME), females, youth and ex-service personnel to present their job opportunities to the sector. SMEs are able to reap the benefits of the jobs hub, normally only afforded to large companies as it is sponsored by twenty-five of the sectors employers.
The collaboration of twenty-five sector-leading companies are committed to raising the profile, visibility, and reputation of the sector, demonstrating why the sector is an attractive place to work. By bringing together employers, partnerships and technology, the project seeks to establish a more diverse workforce than ever before.
TSN has quickly become the best energy and utility talent attraction initiative in 2019 positioning the energy and utilities sector as the go-to choice for people looking for a fresh exciting career and targets those seeking apprenticeships, graduate roles and a career change. TSN seeks to increase the diversity of the sector’s workforce by engaging groups such as females, young people, ethnic minorities, disabled persons, and ex-military personnel to learn more about why the sector is a great place to work.
TSN has proved to be very successful in attracting talent for large companies and is now being made available to smaller and medium sized companies. By providing the opportunity to share and promote job roles alongside larger companies, TSN has created broader sector visibility with faster and cheaper hiring opportunities.
Aidan Brooks, Talent Engagement Manager of TSN says: “We are delighted to receive this award. We have been working with 25 of the largest energy and utility companies in the UK to challenge stereotypes and raise awareness of the breadth of opportunities available. Talent Source Network has proved successful in attracting underrepresented communities and delivering candidate job applications to the 25 sponsoring brands, we are excited that we are now able to open up this opportunity to smaller companies (SME’s).”
